Lighting Layout Design - How many can lights are too many?
So I know you are suppose to have layered lights - currently my plan calls for:
- Recessed can lights in Yellow - on dimmers in 4 seperate areas - including those that are positioned close to the counter tops rather than in the aisles to be task lights
- 3 Pendant lights in Orange over the island
- Under cabinet lighting in Red
How does this look? And, how many can lights is too many?
Here is the basic layout:
And here is how they are grouped together for switches. The colors of circles don't signify anything - just a way to tell the groupings apart:
Thoughts? I guess one of my concerns, in addition to the cost, is will it be super hot with this many cans? And would I do better with one flush mount light in the keeping room. Maybe I should do a flush mount light there but leave the cans on the left over the locker area...??? TIA.
